    Off the top of my head, I remember:

    Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding
    Tiny Dancer
    Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting
    I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues
    Bennie and the Jets
    Candle in the Wind
    Something About The Way You Look Tonight
    Daniel
    Madman Across the Water
    Take Me To The Pilot
    Philadelphia Freedom
    You're Never Too Old To Love Somebody
    Circle of Life
    Crocodile Rock
    Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
    The Bitch is Back
    I'm Still Standing
    Rocket Man
    Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
    Your Song

    He played more, and the order is messed up, but basically he played all of his hits. My mother is annoyed because he plays rare songs in Europe, and all the radio hits here (go figure).

    Yea, I moved back to NorCal after I graduated. Well, "graduated". I walked, then found out two weeks later that I have to retake a class. Fail. I'm going to try to take it up here and then transfer the credit.

    As it currently stands, I'm only going to LA on 9/26, and Sacramento on 9/28. Got GA tickets for both, so I'll be spending a bunch of time queuing. Don't have the time or funds to go to all 5 shows at the moment. I'm dreading that I'll somehow end up missing the shows with good setlists.

    That EJ concert sounds awesome. I really want to see him and Billy Joel the next time they do a Face to Face tour. What other songs did they play?

    Didn't your location say SoCal before? *is not very observant lately*

    My father is all for going to San Diego in September. Now I just need decent tickets, and to accumulate enough PTO to take two days off.

    The Elton John concert rocked. Even with food poisoning (he took a couple of breaks), he played over 2 and a half hours. (I wish Muse would do the same.) I knew all the songs, since I've been hearing them since before I was born. Funeral for a Friend is chilling live. I've inherited my mother's dislike of the super-extended Rocket Man, though.

    And then EJ called the artists who boycott Arizona f%$#wits and won the crowd. My mom took a sign with the Argentinian flag on it that read 'Argentina <3 You' and they all pointed at it and blew kisses at her and stuff, so she was over the moon. She even got a guitar pick. The only low point was the venue. Tucson's Convention Center is like my high school gym, only twice as big. The security guards were worse than the Phoenix ones (They wouldn't even let my mom and the other crazy fans take pictures in front of the stage...before the show started. WTF? It's not like it'll hurt the piano!), and there is not a single place around the TCC where you can buy a bottle of water at 11:30.

    We had a blast, though. What sucked was driving to Tucson, finding out the show was postponed, sleeping horribly on hotel beds, driving home, going to work for 4 hours, driving back to Tucson, going to the show, sleeping less than five hours, driving home, and then working a full day. By 6 on Friday I gave up and went home.

    I'm working for Aetna. My title according to HR is Network Representative, but that's just because they are lazy and don't change the job descriptions. I'm the newbie on the Provider Data Management team, and I'll be doing quality control and reports for the state's Medicaid program. It's not a "programming" job, per se, but I'll get some industry experience and use lots of SQL. Now that I'm in, it'll be easier to transfer to an IT department...and hopefully one in some other state. Aetna is very open to WAH (Work-at-Home).

    I'm going to be haunting TicketMaster and MuseBay as well, since I had no money when the SoCal tickets went on sale. As much as I'd love GA, if I drag my father along he won't go for it. He's very uncomfortable in seats, at least at USAC (He's 6'0 and 250 pounds), but I doubt he'll want to stand in the back for the whole show, and there is no way he'd line up all afternoon. It depends on when we drive in or fly in anyway--probably the latter, because I don't have much accrued PTO.

    I did think of a Pictionary court at one time. Perhaps we should have a vote, or have people self-nominate like we did. Some people (I won't name names) seem to hang out on the board all day, so they'd be perfect for it. They can hold down the fort when we're not around.

    Like that Pirates line: "I leave you people alone for just a minute and look what happens, everything's gone to pot!"

    Where are you working at these days? Putting that CS degree to good use? I'm trying to find tickets to all 3 SoCal gigs as well (hopefully Ticketmaster pulls their usual shit and releases more tickets a couple weeks in advance; or other people have conflicts and put them up on MuseBay); I've already got my Sacramento tickets. My mom's been turned into a Muser by the CD w/ MKU I left in the car, so she'll probably attend some gigs with me, though I doubt she'll want GA. Have to figure out how that'll balance with queuing bright and early. The probability of hearing Dead Star is probably less than that. My mom's hoping for Endlessly, which has about the same chance.

    I'll pop into the thread at some point; for now I'm content watching and hoping they get their shit together. We need some more icons...Jester, for one, lol

    I have noticed...and I couldn't believe how the thread got all screwed up. You leave people alone for a few days and everything goes to hell in a handbasket.

    I'm just getting used to my new work schedule...and mourning for the World Cup final that we're not going to play...and turning my father into a Muser (Seriously. Now he's all sorry that he didn't come to the Phoenix show with me. I'm trying to convice him to fly out to San Diego in September, if I can hunt down some decent tickets, and save up the money for the flight and hotel. I haven't told him that the possibility of hearing Dead Star at the show is about 0.0000899%).

    Anyway, I'll probably barge into the thread tomorrow and see if I can impose some kind of order. You do the same, O Pictionary King. You have the *authority*.

    Time for more Pictionary? We've had people drop in and post puzzles then disappear, or solve puzzles and not post new ones...It's all clusterfucky. Must set up a court and impose order on the chaos!!

    Oh, boo hoo. At least you could see Dom's sticks. From my spot, Dom himself was smaller than my thumb. I gave up trying to take pictures and dedicated myself to dancing and singing instead, which worked out pretty well.

    Perhaps you'll get lucky and Muse will have polls for you to pick the songs. You'll get NSC anyway, but maybe they'll throw in Citizen Erased or Bliss. It hasn't happened yet and I'm already jealous. I need to get a job in Southern Cali quick!

    Sure I can complain, haha. If the US Airways people hadn't fucked up, I would've gotten one of Dom's sticks. GL isn't actually a bad song, but there's others I'd prefer to hear. Sadly, with the advent of NSC, that's one less spot for a really good song.

    You know, I don't think you get to complain about the Phoenix gig if you're going to all the California ones. You'll get plenty of Guiding Light over there.
